Climate
The 2015 vintage started out with a cold, wet winter with abundant snowfall that created excellent water reserves in the soil. Mild springtime temperatures prompted early vine growth that continued throughout the season. Climatic conditions in summer were very dry with high temperatures well above average until the end of August. These hot, dry conditions did not endanger grape ripening due to plentiful water reserves in the vineyards. Harvesting began on September 24th and was completed on September 29th.

Harvest and Vinification
Grapes were carefully selected, destemmed and crushed. Maceration on the skins lasted for approximately 10 days at a maximum temperature of 30 °C (86 °F). Malolactic fermentation was completed before the end of winter. The wine was aged in oak barrels of varying capacities.
